Slash Gear Reviews the Fluance RT81 HiFi Turntable
"Playback from the RT81 was quite good, with even the deeper bass of hip-hop and some electronic music coming through smooth and clear. "Read the Full Review

Tech Crunch Reviews the Fluance RT81 HiFi Turntable
"The walnut finish gives the RT81 one of the best looks of any entry-level turntable I’ve seen. It’s sturdier and heavier than some of the cheaper turntables out there from brands like Crosley and Denon. "Read the Full Review
Digital Trends Review of the RT81
"Music played on the record player was deep and smooth with excellent clarity. In general, there was low distortion, sparkling treble, and strong bass across the records we listened to, from Broadway to Drake."Read the Full Review
Fast easy setup. Sounds great. Looks beautiful. Very happy with the turntable.
excellent sound quality,spacious sound field,good separation in the crossover,good tight bass.
Such a beautiful turntable, sounds great, relatively easy to assemble. A true pleasure to use. Looking forward to diving in to vinyl.
Quality design for the money, resists skipping even when jostled a bit. I love the tonearm, easy to adjust. Great instruction manual.
The RT-81 turntable has been fantastic. I love that it has a pre-amp and the balanced tone-arm is super nice and very high quality
I am satisfied with the quality compared to the price I paid for this. It's been only a week since I got this and so far I'm happy with it.
Amazing turntable beginning with the build quality, all the way through to the listening experience. It was shipped promptly with great communication from Fluance. Even if it didn't work, it's still something you can stare at and appreciate. Excellent buy!!!!
Beautiful turntable, excellent finish. Everything looks alright, except the plastic 45 RPM adapter (there is no specific place for it too), and the cheap RCA cables which catch any furniture or contact and get amplified (had to keep the cables away of the furniture to improve the problem, I will replace them). After everything was setup, I couldn't get a good sound out of my Fleetwood Mac LP... Sounds like a bad aligned cartridge or something... I will check later...
The turntable is beautiful and easy to set up. Very happy!
Amazing turntable. Looks fantastic, and sounds even better. Solid build, great quality materials. The built in phono sounded good with powered speakers. It was easy to disable the built in phono (just flick the switch), and go directly into my vintage receiver's phono stage. Beautiful warm sound, full detail and response. I can't wait to try this RT-81 with the new phono preamp I just ordered. This was a nice upgrade in build, looks, and sound quality from the LP-60 I was using. Shipping was fast, and the unit was very well packed. Great job Fluance!
First time record owner and love how easily it was to get into a new hobby.
Great record player! The audio is amazing, but on the next model please make it easier to change the rpm speed.
Great sound quality. It feels like you're in the studio with the artists and the product is super sturdy. Ships very quickly at no extra charge!
Excellent build quality and performance for this price range. Really solid. AT95 cartridge produces rich sound, unlike others that can be thin on the bottom end. Only real gripe is the lack of an auto-return, for which I'd have given a 4.5 rating if there was one. Auto shut-off works, but seems completely goofy on an otherwise really nice turntable.See all reviews
